until next year…

Bye bye until next Christmas. Yes, I almost met my late father’s ultimate procrastination date with taking down the Christmas tree this time! One year he waited until Valentine’s Day. I am not far off.

I love my ornaments and it all seems to go so fast once the tree is up…and then you have to take it down and put it all away.

I am home sick, a COLD not COVID but I couldn’t put it off any longer. Sigh.

The ornaments tell a story of many Christmas trees in some cases. For the vintage ones I have from childhood Christmases in my mind’s eye I can even still see some of the trees. For the vintage ornaments I have collected, I can only imagine what those Christmases might have been like.

Now it’s time to get moving and put them away.

Thanks for stopping by.

things that make me happy include…

…Christmas ornaments!!! Christmas is coming!!!

Alderfer had a holiday auction. I especially love vintage ornaments and these fruit ornaments caught my eye.

I put in a super low bid and with buyer’s premium and tax it came to $30 and change! I am super excited to have them home!

Christmas countdown has begun!! (Much to my husband’s chagrin.)
